From girls' bedrooms to striking grown-up accents, pink takes center stage in these fun decorating ideas
Thomas J. Story
One wall of coral-pink wallpaper is all it takes to bring life and energy to this dining nook. The color is strong enough that patterns work better than solids. The lantern, pillows, and art pick up on the hue in delicate ways. A complementary wall of greige (a mix of gray and beige resulting in a warm, muddy tone) grounds the red and acts as a neutral without being recessive.
